Terms and conditions
By booking for a class it is understood that these Terms and Conditions are understood and accepted by all participants, and that the booking agent or organizer of the group has explained these Terms and Conditions to all participants
- Cooking Class content may change from time to time. We are also able to tailor-make classes to suit clients’ individual needs at an additional cost.
- Unless otherwise indicated, all cooking classes have a maximum of 48 participants at Wickedfood Earth (4 counters);
- Prior to arrival, we would ask the organiser to divide the group up into teams (or we would be happy to do it randomly, at your request), as follows (should you wish to divide the teams up into smaller groups, there will be a surcharge of R1 000 per counter to cover additional staff and operational costs):
- Up to 12 participants – 1 counter
- 13 to 24 participants – 2 counter
- 25 to 36 participants – 3 counter
- 37 to 48 participants – 4 counter
- We supply all ingredients, extensive notes and the use of an apron to wear while cooking (we sell retail aprons @ R180 per apron). At the end of the class, clients are invited to sit down and enjoy the food they have prepared, an ideal way of interacting with each other.
- Meat – we supply halaal factory farmed chicken (±300g pp). For an additional fee we are also able to offer free-range chicken, beef mince, beef steak and lamb, as well as vegetarian. Please note that due to the format of classes, if halaal or vegetarian menus are chosen the whole cooking class will need to use these ingredients. We can unfortunately not accommodate special dietary requirements and allergies.
- As these are hands-on classes, we suggest that participants come comfortably dressed, preferably in jeans and T-shirt, with flat gym shoes, as leather soles are inclined to slip.
- For drinks, we supply ice water, teas and coffees. We are not licensed. By prior arrangement (minimum 7 working days), we can order in additional soft drinks, wine, beer and ciders. Please discuss when making your booking. As all of our classes are hands-on, our knives are sharp and we cook with gas, we need to ensure that participants are in full control of their actions at all times. Spirits are not allowed to be consumed on the premises. All cooking participants are asked to refrain from consuming alcohol prior to the class (any participants disregarding these stipulations, will be asked to terminate their participation immediately, and be removed from the property if necessary). If you bring your own drinks, please bring in a cool box with you, as well as ice. Please also note that we only have very limited fridge facilities for chilling drinks.
- As these classes are very popular we would suggest that clients book at their earliest convenience. To confirm bookings we would require a 50% non-refundable deposit within 3 days of booking, with the balance paid not later than 14 days prior to the event (classes will not be run, and we reserve the right to re-sell the date, if full fees are not received 14 days prior). Once bookings have been confirmed, no changes to the dates will be considered if these changes are made less than 14 days prior to the original date, and no refunds will be considered. No refunds will be considered for a decrease in numbers within 7 working days of the booked date.
- Classes run any time during the day, at the client’s convenience, from ±09h00 onwards. (We have a R500/hr overtime/transport surcharge for functions that end after 17h00).
- The object of the school is to teach cooking skills in a fun environment, and the emphasis is on hands-on cooking, having fun and socialising. To ensure that our instructors have control, we are unable to accommodate individuals who are rowdy and unruly as this inevitably leads to a breakdown of the class creating an unpleasant environment for the rest of the group. We would look to the organizer of the group to make this clear to all participants and to control the group. We reserve the right to terminate the class prematurely should the group become too unruly and we will not consider any refunds. The booking agent or organizer of the group will be held liable for costs arising from damages caused to property and equipment due to negligence on the part of unruly students.
- Although every precaution has been taken to ensure the safety of participants, their belongings and their vehicles, Wickedfood Earth Country Cooking School and its staff cannot be held responsible for any injuries or other mishaps that may occur while on the premises. By booking for a class it is understood that these Terms and Conditions are understood, and accepted by all participants and that the booking agent or organizer of the group has explained these Terms and Conditions to all participants.
